Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

But I’m unsure in The Haunting and The Highwayman, I think The Highwayman is used in the other dungeons but I’ve never heard about The Haunting though.

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

I have seen one photo on someone's personal Facebook of two Galactica Airways hostesses, as well as comments from people who've spotted some Ghost Pirates, so they do exist. I can only assume that having them as "Scaremosphere" rather than actual scare zones gives them greater flexibility,...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

With a few weeks still to go, it may be that things are still to be added, however it looks as though the layout of The Welcoming is somewhat reduced with the potential removal of the hooded section and reworking of the finale.
